New York Mayor Adams says ‘Kansas has no brand’

New York City Mayor Eric Adams, a Democrat, claimed Tuesday that “New York has a brand” but Kansas doesn’t.

“We have a brand. New York has a brand,” Adams said, claiming, “Kansas doesn’t have a brand.” He said that New York’s “brand means diversity. This mark means we care. This brand means we are compassionate.”

The mayor’s comments were met with backlash from some on social media.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, a Republican who is currently constantly for governor, tweeted“Mayor who? Kansas is not New York and we certainly don’t want to be. My focus here in God’s Country will be on making life more affordable and keeping communities safe, both of which cannot be said about New York.”

Former Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, Ajit Pai tweeted“Part of branding Kansas is being kind and charitable to people from other states who rant about how backward or inferior they think Kansas is — even when most likely none of them have actually spent any meaningful time in the sunflower state.”

Radio host Buck Sexton tweeted“I saw two shirtless homeless men throwing trash cans at each other in Times Square at 10am last week and last weekend a maniac threatened a family member with a stick – while she was pushing a stroller. So yes, NYC has a brand.”

“I lived in Kansas for a few years. ‘Brand’ is overrated. Safe streets, good neighborhoods, and politicians who care more about substance than brand are what make Kansas so special.” tweeted Jason Whitlock, Host of BlazeTV’s “Fearless with Jason Whitlock.”

“Kansas has KS wheat, Jayhawk basketball, KS beef and the Wizard of Oz. What is New York Mayor Adams’ brand? Violence, murder, homelessness and high taxes? I take Kansas every day,” said Kansas GOP Sen. Roger Marshall tweeted.

“I select Kansas 100 times out of 100 over New York City. See, I’ve never stepped over human feces in Kansas like I did in NYC,” said Blaze Media’s Keith Malinak tweeted. “Wait …. Is human feces on your city’s sidewalks your trademark, @ericadamsfornyc?”

While many Americans are troubled by the “drag queen story hour” phenomenon, in which drag queens read stories to children, Mayor Adams has previously expressed support for holding events featuring drag queens in schools and libraries.

“Drag Storytellers, and the libraries and schools they support, foster a love of diversity, personal expression, and literacy that is at the core of what encompasses our city,” a tweet Posted earlier this year on the @NYCMayor Twitter account. “At a time when our LGBTQ+ communities are increasingly under attack in this country, we must use our education system to educate. The goal is not only for our kids to be academically smart, but also emotionally intelligent,” another tweet specified. New York Mayor Adams says ‘Kansas has no brand’
